On the heels of news that the Employment Index in U.S. Climbs to Highest Level in Two Years as reported by Bloomberg Business Week, I'm happy to report that I too am moving up in employment to a new position overseeing customer service for a branch of local government. Lots of low-hanging fruit, right?
I've met with my new team, who are all experienced in community outreach and helping residents get involved with their government, so that is a huge plus.
I'm still getting up to speed in the new role but I'm looking forward to the opportunities. It seems well-suited to my background in communications and social media, my interest in open government and Gov 2.0, and my customer-centric approach to public service.
I'll see how the work-life-balance adjusts over the coming weeks and months. Dylan's a month away from the one year mark, which means no more pumping during the day for me, just nursing evenings and weekends as needed. That means no more bottle washing, packing and transporting every day, making getting prepped for each day a little easier.
